The charity making life better by water

Development requirements

We are a major land owner with a unique portfolio of properties throughout England and Wales. Along with developing our own portfolio, our Property Development team identify and procure new opportunities for future development and investment.

What we are looking for:

  • cleared or occupied sites or premises adjacent to our waterways
  • sites with no existing planning consent, although we would discuss any opportunities with our joint ventures in case there is a direct development angle
  • sites affected by contamination or environmental issues would be considered
  • short-term income, or at least a mechanism to mitigate any holding costs will be particularly attractive
  • previous acquisitions include multi-let industrial estates, offices, retail accommodation and green field sites

We deliver the majority of our developments alongside our joint venture partners.

If you would like to discuss an opportunity or you require any further information, please email Cheryl Blount-Powell, our National Property Development Manager, or call her on 07920 598117 or 01606 723859.
